Colombia (Caribbean side)

  • I'm headed to Colombia next week on a non-surf trip, but hoping to surf a bit. I'm staying in Cartagena for a few nights (may head to Baranquila as well) and was wondering if anyone has any experience surfing down there (Surfline and the usual suspects dont offer too much insight)


    Seems like there's some swell for the area, but persistent awful onshore winds. Been doing a ton of research but would appreciate anyone's actual experience down there--renting a board, places to check out, etc. Unfortunately will not have a car.


    thanks

  • Update---there is indeed some fun little surf in Cartagena. Was able to rent boards--a firewire for the better day and a longboard for 2 smaller days--right next to the best wave in the area. They seems to consistently get waist-high waves and onshore winds from the local trades, but early AM is fun enough.
